    Well, if he's not traded, he's sure as hell not going to hold out (and tie himself in to his Jets' contract for another 3 reasonably priced years).

    must be quite a humbling experience for revis. he's accustomed to dictating his terms. but now, it's clear teams are leery of his lofty salary demands, as well as his injury. and he's under contract and can't even hold out this time. interest in the league's best cb is lukewarm as of now. how many other positions would that hold for? and the jets are in no rush to deal him.

    Only started 7 games and yet had 5 games that we would consider good to great games by Sanchez standards…

    22-32 - 68.8% - 219 yards –- 1 td – 1 int
    16-21 – 76.2% - 119 yards – 0 int
    22-34 – 64.7% - 251 yards – 1 td – 0 int
    32-51 – 62.7% - 381 yards – 2 tds – 0 int
    32-48 – 66.7% - 345 yards - 1 td – 1 int

    I don’t think Sanchez can throw over 30-40 times and complete at such a high percentage.

    I’m not saying he’s the end all be all, but is he an upgrade over Sanchez? Likely.

    Also to say he’s Derek Anderson is simply being hateful.
    Even when Anderson had a decent year (29 tds), he only completed 56.5%.
    Truthfully, a far better and valid comparison to Derek Anderson is Mark Sanchez…

    I mentioned this before--Revis can do a defacto holdout. He can pass his physical, show up for the first practice so he won't be put on the PUP list. Then he'll claim his knee hurts and then sit out all practices and preseason games while riding the stationary bike.

    He'll then probably participate in the practice before the season and then claim his knee is sore again. He'll be on the active roster but not active for the games. He only has to be with the team for the 1st 6 weeks then he can leave because this year will be vested and then he can become a FA next year.

    Revis is not risking another injury without a new contract. It doesn't make any sense from his POTV to play without the new deal.

    Not saying they'll succeed but I'd guess the Jets would then seek legal action.

    He's even pulled the fake injury before as he himself admitted..

    @JasonLaCanfora: Revis to the Bucs is far from dead. Expected to heat up next week at League Meetings: http://t.co/KMkLNh7Mrd

    Despite statements to the contrary by the Jets, trading star cornerback Darrelle Revis remains a priority for them and a deal with the Buccaneers is not dead, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

    The desire to do a deal from both sides is there. Though they have yet to agree on a trade, those talks could easily be stoked at the owners meetings in Arizona next week.

    In essence, the entire front offices will be gathered as well as the head coaches and owners. To this point, the money for a new Revis deal is not expected to be a holdup, sources said, and the Jets want to avoid a situation in which they lose Revis for nothing after the 2013 season. The Bucs would love to upgrade their struggling secondary, and the record signing of safety Dashon Goldson is not a hindrance, either, from a budget or cap standpoint.

    New York is trying to get a first-round pick as part of the compensation, and the sides could get creative in how they structure the deal, with provisions that would elevate a future draft pick based on Revis' production.

    Other teams could pursue Revis as well and have explored trade scenarios, but things progressed much further with the Bucs. Several league sources have identified Tampa Bay as the likely destination for him since before the combine.

    Revis has one year worth $6 million left on his deal and would be seeking to become one of the highest-paid defenders in the game, but the Bucs have been heavy spenders in recent years and are trying to galvanize their fan base, fill their stadium and compete after lean years in the standings and at the turnstiles.

    @corryjoel: @JasonLaCanfora Here's a way to address Revis' contract while he's still injured. http://t.co/M7TIh7L5Hq

    Seriously doubt he goes that route...that means he won't have played a full season two yrs in a row when he finally hits FA....he'll never get big $ doing that.

    Revis is going to be very measured and cautious in his return, he can not afford a set-back. He is under no obligation or even expectation that he needs to play in the preseason. There is no doctor in the world that will clear to hit play until he says he is ready. If Trade talks heat up before camp I am sure he will allow the jets to release his medical records once he is assured that the other team is serious about meeting his demands. If things dont heat up he will just take it slow and probably ramp up to full game status in the beginning of october.

    Then get a "hometeam doctor" to recommend that he be put on the shelf on injured reserve.

    It will be interesting to see if his ego is bigger than his wallet. If he wants BIG money, he needs to prove this injury is a thing of the past.

    That makes no sense, Revis is going to get the big contract by sitting out another year? His best way to get paid is to come back and be the Revis of old. A team will pay up for that quality but no team is going to pay up if he has been out for two years straight.

    But this means the jets get no comp at all at the end of the year. He will then be 18 months from surgery and 100% healed. He will work out at a mini-combine march and do every move that he is asked. They will be no compensation to the jets and a lot more teams will be bidding.

    And with the CB market being what it is, you can see why Revis' camp felt urgency to get him dealt early. Tougher to ask for $16M/year now.

    18 months for the way acl's are healing these days? No, it would be minus for teams to have to shell out huge dollars for a guy who has not played in two years no matter how he moves around.

    Would you shell out more for a guy that came back off an injury played a pro bowl caliber season and showed he was fully healthy and back or for a guy that used to be a pro bowl player that hasn't played in two years due to a lingering knee problem.

    The effect on the Jets is totally secondary in all of this.

    Exactly. The Jets have been the victor in this battle. Idzik has played Revis like a fiddle

    Bucs release LB Quincy Black, who suffered nerve damage after a collision last season.

    Black was released/failed physical. He is now eligible for $1-million injury protection. Bucs save $5.5-million on salary cap

    Bucs also finally announced the signing of RFA RB LeGarrette Blount to a 1-yr deal; tendered RFA DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim

    Bucs also confirmed the signing of Saints LB Jonathan Casillas

    Bucs signed former Cowboys WR Kevin Ogletree.

    Excellent for the Revis front. Terrible for Black.
